      Simple read

      This was a Christmas present from a friend as I'd heard about this author and was interested in trying her books. I don't know if this is a good one to have started with or not but it's a lovely story.

      It's about 3 girls - Tsugumi, Maria and Yoko. Tsugumi and Yoko are sisters and Maria their cousin (she is the narrator). It's about their lives, their family and growing up along with all the problems that brings. Whilst simple in style, it is an enjoyable read. Perhaps a little too slow for me in that I remained detached from the characters, always feeling like an outsider.

      I'd like to read her other work, in time. I don't feel I could rush out and read something else by her right now as this was very different from what I would normally read. However, this book will stay in my memory as a lovely little tale.
